2021 has surely created opportunities for all of us to look to the only place where we can find true contentment and peace. Because of those who are generous with their time and treasure, the lives of the families in the Parker Street neighborhood continue to be blessed. And because of endless prayers and support, Parker Street Ministries continues to help my friends and neighbors recognize and rest in the dignity and value that is theirs as image bearers of Christ.
My family has had the high honor to call the Parker Street neighborhood our home for more than 14 years. There is no greater joy I have known in my life and in the lives of my wife and children than living in community with our neighbors. We moved here because we felt called to make a difference. Instead, God wanted us to live alongside these friends and make the Gospel more real than it has ever been. We are forever changed.
Please know we pray for you, and we covet your prayers. We regularly see how prayer changes lives through the Gospel. Thank you for continuing to look outside your neighborhood into ours.
His will, not ours,
